# Lesson Worksheet: The Engineering Design Process and Energy Science • 4th Grade

In this worksheet, we will practice describing the engineering design process as it relates to solutions to energy use.

Q1:

Fill in the blank: The city of Ashland hired an engineering firm to build wind turbines that could only be 150 feet tall. This requirement is an example of a .

• Acriterion
• Bconstraint
• Cprototype
• Dproblem

Q2:

Fill in the blank: A civil engineering firm was working on designs to build a dam that created the most power. They built a small version of the dam and ran it through several tests to see how well it worked. This step in the engineering design process is .

• Aidentifying the problem
• Bdetermining constraints and criteria
• Cevaluating and presenting data
• Dtesting the model

Q3:

Isabella and Noah are talking about the engineering design process. Which student is right?

• AIsabella is right.
• BNoah is right.
• CBoth are right.
• DNeither is right.

Q4:

Fill in the blank: Sophia wanted to design a model boat that could sail 5 miles per hour. The speed of 5 miles per hour is an example of a .

• Atest
• Bconstraint
• Ccriterion
• Dprototype

Q5:

The engineering design loop is shown below. Which step involves creating a prototype?

• AIdentify the problem
• BDetermine constraints and criteria
• CMake a model
• DEvaluate and present data
